Bank-Fintech Partnership Expert and Global Startup Mentor in Berlin, Germany
I have been in the financial services industry for over 10 years, on three continents, with C-suite experience and a global exposure. Most recently, I’ve focused on bank-fintech partnerships and corporate innovation within the banking space while helping startups build and grow their business.
I provide strategic insights, connections and applied knowledge to entrepreneurs in Fintech and other verticals helping them get access to, engage with and make the most out of their interplay with strategic partners the likes of investors and corporates.
If I am not working with entrepreneurs, I may well be speaking at conferences, delivering masterclasses or simply listening to a good podcast/audiobook...or tinkering with my own startup ideas.
I always like to connect with entrepreneurs, innovators, and alike - get in touch!
Mahi joined Fintech Europe's champions team within Deutsche Bank and since day one has been highly effective. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Fintech and adjacent areas of Innovation. A pleasure to work with him.

It has been such a pleasure getting mentorship support from Mahi. As a startup and female founder in a male dominated industry in Africa, well, the challenges are immense! However, with Mahi's patient, consistent and motivational advice in the back of my mind after 12 weeks of check ins, I felt ready to conquer the world. He gave constructive feedback on my business plan, broke down entrepreneurship concepts and jargon and gave me a powerful reading list to equip me for success.

I have had the privilege to hear Mahi speak and present on many occasions. He is an outstanding presenter, who can not only make complex topics clear and understandable, but he is able to do so in an interesting way and -- when the context lends itself -- with a great sense of humor. I have also been privy to Mahi's leadership and organizational skills, and have seen how well he is able to bring together groups to cooperate and deliver on goals.
